As with all jurisdictions, the Western Cape has its own distinctive practices and procedures with which we, as a Cape Town based law firm, are well acquainted. Our offices are situated on the doorstep of the Western Cape High Court and we offer our colleagues in other jurisdictions complete litigation support services.
We have a proven track record acting as correspondent attorneys for several of the country’s most recognised litigation firms. We pride ourselves in quick turn-around times, immediate attention to instructions and meaningful advice and input relating to the practice and procedures of the Western Cape High Court. We also have a network of Cape-based counsel.
We conduct litigation in other centres in South Africa and provide support to certain law firms who do not specialise in litigation and dispute resolution and require our expert legal support in dealing with their clients’ disputes.
Given the rapid dissolution of international commercial and corporate borders, we offer clients litigation management and support for disputes in foreign jurisdictions.
We have on several occasions assisted clients with the management of litigation abroad including the United States, Switzerland, the British Virgin Islands, England, The Netherlands, Botswana and Namibia.
We have found that in providing such services, our clients are able to avoid the time consuming and often frustrating process of managing the conduct of litigation in a foreign country and the delivery of services from local lawyers that meet the client’s requirements.
Armed with an in-depth background to the matter, we work closely with our foreign colleagues to limit the client’s legal cost exposure and risks as well as monitor the progress of the matter and ensure that matters are dealt with professionally and as expeditiously as possible.
